As-salaamu `alaykum wa rahmatullaahi ta`ala wa barakaatuhu. We've known Imam Senad since a long time and he supported me a lot. He is from the highest level of tariqat.
Today we are witnessing a lot of problems around the world and no one can eliminate them except with the intercession of the Prophet (s). [The Last Days] are already taking place. People might say, "You’ve been saying this for many years, but nothing happened." The ones who are not believing must be told that it has appeared already. This is supported by Awliya, so we can remind you that last week we spoke about Grandshaykh `AbdAllah al-Fa'iz ad-Daghestani (q), who is buried in Syria. His title was "`AbdAllah al-Fa'iz," although today they use a different name, but his name means "`AbdAllah the Winner," the one who won the love of the Prophet (s). It is very well known among Awliya that his name has been spread across the East and West, and no one can take that position from him.
The one who came after him was Mawlana Shaykh Nazim, may Allah bless his soul. All his life was spent [in da`wah] for many years with Allah's acceptance. Now in these days, I am seeing what he said would happen, happened after he passed in order to teach the people to be patient. Most of what he said has already happened and it comes out from through the du’a of Prophet (s) and three signs that he gave, which Awliya have memorized: Cyprus will sink; he said a big mountain in Turkey will explode and this is the last sign for Sayyidina al-Mahdi's (a) appearance while most of the signs preceding Mahdi (a) have appeared, and we cannot deny this.
I accompanied Mawlana Shaykh `AbdAllah (q) for many years; that’s why I am able to bear witness that these signs have appeared. The problems that are coming now involve too much war and people are sitting in their homes going to sleep peacefully at night and waking up in the morning to find big problems are covering their countries, and they don’t know what to do.
Two days ago there was a big explosion in Beirut. Who’s going to take revenge for these people? They were innocent, they didn’t do anything. Five hundred have been killed and about six thousand were wounded. Why? Because they were not happy with the government, so the government blew them up, what more cruelty can you get than this? When Munkar and Nakeer come to them in their graves, they will ask them, “What have you done? You destroyed the whole city in one or two explosions.”
This was a big event in Lebanon, like the problems that took place before in Imam Senad’s country, Bosnia, where they were killing a lot of Muslims.
Naqshbandis have a chance to ask for forgiveness and they will be forgiven, but they have to ask.
The second sign is that the Awliya will take revenge in order to purify people. Don’t think that Allah (swt) is not `Adil, Just. In every moment, Allah’s angels are asking forgiveness from Allah and the Awliya are supporting them. One day I was visiting Grandshaykh (q), and he spoke about something that happened in the city of Damascus. He said that there is going to be a war in the Golan Heights, which is very famous. He recited Fatihah and some surahs and Holy Qur’an, and said to take onions with us wherever we travel, as it will save us, because it has some kind of ability to protect people from getting sick. He told us that about 60 years ago.
I recently turned on the TV and saw that people were being asked to take shelter under the power or articles that will protect you and save you. Scientists discovered onions have the special power to protect people, and this happened for Lebanon. Grandshaykh (q) said, “Look,” he was sitting on the balcony [overlooking Damascus from Mt. Qasyoun], as they used to always sit on the roof of the house or the balcony. Subhaan-Allah, Mawlana explained to us 60 years ago about the importance of onions, and now they are talking about it on TV, that if you don’t use onions you might have problems. So now that power has been mentioned after 60 years.
The protection and Intercession for the Muslims is in the hands of Awliya and Imam Mahdi (a). We hope that they accept us and that whatever we need of protection will come. Don’t ask why or how. Sayyidina al-Mahdi (a) showed his hand to Grandshaykh (q), as we mentioned last week, when he met with Sayyidina al-Mahdi (a) spiritually and he said to him, “Yaa Waladee, I cannot place you next to me, you will not be able to take it.” He said that and one day passed the next day, jets flew overhead with immense speed in order to frighten people. This is showing what is going to happen, when Mahdi (a) said, “I cannot give to you, but extend your finger and hold your finger to my finger,” and gave him baya’a.
Grandshaykh (q) did that and then everyone left. This is a sign to show their spiritual power, that they can take your power and can show you spiritual powers through wars and any other signs there may be, and they show it to whom they like. May Allah bless you.
